Biography

Oya Yazgan studied regulation of gene expression and molecular signaling mechanisms in bacteria, yeast, fruit flies, amphibians and mammalian cells. Yazgan's work for her Ph.D. degree concentrated on elucidating the mechanisms of action of JunD transcription factor and its interaction with Jun N-terminal kinases and Menin tumor suppressor protein. Yazgan's first postdoctoral research at University of Iowa primarily focused on DNA insulator elements and their role in gene regulation. Her second postdoctoral research examined the role epigenetic modifications plays in cellular stress responses to various DNA damaging agents and in regulation of mitochondrial function. Yazgan currently teaches full-time.
